When You are Stretched

I have been feeling pulled in a number of directions lately and while I have the capacity to give to each person asking for my help, I have come to the conclusion that this is not necessarily the best thing for me to do.

So my question to myself has been (and continues to be): will this “ask” from someone help me increase my vitality, energy, and confidence? You may think (I did) that this is a selfish way to approach my life. Yet I have come realize (with the help of a dear and special friend), that my choosing the best for myself actually increases my capacity to help others.

When I choose, everyone receives more – including me.

What a concept!

Best regards,
